We love nothing more than to share our local heritage and countryside experiences! Our knowledgeable guides will take you on a magical journey exploring the history, geography and geology of the Lake District or Yorkshire Dales, giving you plenty of time for you to explore and savour your chosen sights and attractions.
Got a specific hobby, interest or requirement?
We offer a tailored service so why not tell us about your hobbies and interests so we can suggest suitable activities and attractions?
We will plan a route that matches your specific requirements so if you want to minimise walking, have special access needs or would prefer to stick to low-level trails, then we will adjust the itinerary and logistics accordingly. Plus our guides will always have a plan B at the ready should the weather close in!
Exploring the Lake District
The Lakes offers something for everybody; nature enthusiasts, historians, art and craft aficionados or even gin lovers will not be disappointed. Aside from the spectacular views of rugged fells, tranquil lakes and quaint towns and villages, the Lakes offer an impressive variety of tourist draws.
Top attractions include Hill Top (home of Beatrix Potter), Dove Cottage (home of William Wordsworth), Windermere, Honister Slate Mine and Brantwood (home of John Ruskin). Quieter but equally interesting attractions include the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Blackwell House, Lakes Distillery, Wordsworth House and Coniston Water.
Highlights of the Dales
The Yorkshire Dales has a landscape of immense beauty and character thanks its combination of ancient geology, unique nature and local history that stretches back over thousands of years.
Those interested in learning about the area’s industrial heritage can visit working Mills, Railways, Breweries and Creameries, while numerous castles and abbeys offer a glimpse into the Dales’ medieval past. Last but by no means least is the incredible scenery; explore impressive crags, limestone pavement, flowering meadows, tumbling waterfalls and even a labyrinth of underground caves.
